Man v bulls

And they're off - day five in man vs the bulls.

Here in Pamplona, Spain, the bulls seem to be winning - the latest victim- a man towards the end- knocked unconscious.

But he was pretty lucky as revellers in previous days have seen the wrong end of a horn.

Each day the bulls hail from a different region - to find the most fierce.

Last Tuesday was no exception, which saw two runners gored - one critically.

Some called brave - others- well- less intelligent - take part in the San Fermin festival made famous by Ernest Hemingway's novel 'The Sun Also Rises.'

Weekend holiday makers swelled the runners' ranks but still managed a brisk three minute two seconds race.

For those wanting to tempt fate - they only have two more chances as the last run is Tuesday.
